A round up of all the latest sports news in the week commencing Monday 12 March 2018.

Despite the snow and adverse weather conditions we still saw fantastic matches and competitions.

Junior Scullery

The Junior Sculling Head took place on Tuesday 13th March at Dorney Lake. There were thousands of competitors at the event from all of the top rowing schools aged 14 to 18.

In the event that QABC raced in (Junior 18 Women’s quads) there were 34 crews. QABC came 17th and 31st out of 34. This was a bit step on from last year’s performance in this race for Queen Anne’s Boat Club.

Fastnet Tournament 

On Wednesday the U19A and U16A netball teams competed in a fastnet tournament hosted by the Abbey. Fastnet is a variation of netball where the shooters can score goals from outside the circle and the team can nominate a power play where their points are doubled.

The U16A team were the overall winners. Hazelle M-I was awarded player of the tournament.

 

  

Lacrosse

1st Team Nationals

On Monday the 1st team were on day 2 of their nationals. Due to the adverse weather conditions only the championship division was held, with division 1 and 2 being sent home. The matches were straight knockouts on the astro.

In a very tense match against St Mary’s Calne, Queen Anne’s drew. The rules stated that in a draw the first team to score goes through, so Queen Anne’s progressed into the next round.

Their match against Berkhamsted was nailbiting and with only three minutes to go we still had held them to a draw, having scored first. Unfortunately they managed to score in the closing minutes. At this point, having reached the final 8 nationally, Queen Anne’s 1st team was out of the competition.

 

2nd Team Nationals

The second team faced very challenging weather conditions on Saturday with regular snow showers and biting winds, as they played at Cirencester in their Nationals Tournament.

They had an extremely tough pool, but despite losing all feeling in their fingers after 6 hours play in minus temperatures, they had some great matches. They beat Caterham and St Albans and held Berkamsted, the eventual pool winners, to a draw.

The defense were so solid throughout the whole day and the attacks never gave up and worked hard in every match. They ended up 4th in their pool, with only one goal between them and a place in the knockouts.

v St Bartholomew’s won 4 –1

v Berkhamsted drew 2-2

v St Albans won 4-1

v St Catharine’s lost 1-2

v Caterham won 2-1

v LEH lost 1-2

 

   

Congratulations to everyone who has competed over the last week.
